    Might be worth a shot to get in touch with NCE, they might be willing to let you buy a few RJ12 connectors off of them, or at least tell you where they get them. Don't know if they're affected by the...

    I believe the DCC++ crowd was trying something similar a while back. Don't know what the results were, but might be worth looking to see if you can find any info from them.

    Are you any good with computers? The DCC+ is simply built using an Arduino and a motor shield, but it does need a computer to set up and run. More of a DIY solution, but can be built for very low...

    2.5 hours from me. A bit far to be practical, and a direction I'm almost never in for other reasons... But if you get something going, might be able to drop by on occasion. Best of luck! :)
